The GoHD Initiative

EdTech's GoHD intiative aims to take the mystery out of the new high definition projection technology. Every projector and monitor in our spaces is now High Definition 1080P (Full HD), and the EdTech team has prepared the following information in videos and online resources to help you make the most of the new display technology.

Converting your content

The presentations that you have are important, and converting them to take advantage of HD technology is not difficult. Whether you're using Windows or OS X, PowerPoint or Keynote, you'’ll be able to make them look their best. Use the SoM PowerPoint Template to get quickly started in making widescreen, HD-friendly presentations.

GoHD: Creating and Using HD Images

Improve the quality of your digital images by using image editing techniques in Adobe Lightroom. EdTech also offers a slide/document scanning service for faculty that need items (photos, documents, 35mm slides, x-rays, etc.) scanned to a hi-resolution digital format. Full HD (1080P) is approximately 2 megapixels in resolution, so images 2 megapixels and larger are already taking full advantage of the resolution.
